Par 4 452 yards

A new tee has added 35 yards to the hole, making it a very difficult driving hole. "Death Valley" is to the right. The left side of the fairway slopes to the left so that any drive landing on the far left side will kick into the rough. The second shot will be an uphill mid-iron shot to a green that is shaped smaller in the back.
